The Blue Loop of Middelkerke is a relatively new route (12th of June 2016) dedicated postume to the cyclocross champion Norbert Dedeckere. Containing many singletracks through the dunes and a piece of the beach, this offers a lot of interesting and technical parts. The second part of the route passes through the polders and is a but disappointing.
